bwahahaha.... no thanks, i do not want to see it biggrin.gif

seriously like thin easy case on dx50, if only it would not collect all dust around, otherwise perfect fit and worth the money paid.

but screen protector pissed me totally frown.gif

ya the screen protector wasnt really ideal for me either. I bought one off that website that was suggested a few pages back. It was an 8 dolar protector! :basshead:

 

So hoping it was worth it. If not... well i gave it a try.

seriously, do not know why but my screen protector was bad.

as concerns silicon case it is allright, the only issue is this is magnet for dust ... more than the case for c3.

perhaps i expected too much for 241$ but dx50 is worth all "suffering" wink.gif

Don't torture yourself, I goofed when applying the screen protector on my first DX50, I felt even worst when I gave it to my friend, cause now he is the one OCD on the screen biggrin.gif That damn white fluff tongue.gif

I like the silicon case but like you said, it's a dust magnet. I constantly have to wipe it every time I take it out of my pocket then I show it off. smily_headphones1.gif

yeah... thanks, actually i am used to applying screenprotector since we got helluva of iphones and ipads in house, in total eight portable gadgets from apple so my wife turned into a pro for applying screen protectors but even she had problems with iBasso... frown.gif

but you know, all it takes is to switch on dx50, line out into amp and i am ready to forget all my worries biggrin.gif

happy music listen.

Yeah, it's low class quality, I think iBasso would have done well not including it with the DX50. Unfortunately, because I have covered every single electronic device you can think of. My best ones are from Zagg and they are damn costly. It's made from the same material than the army helicopter blade plastic covering. You just can't scratch the damn thing. It's a headache to put on but with the squeegee and the supposedly self healing, the bubbles are gone the very next day. On the down size, they are too expensive to buy except if you are nuts like me and you don't want a single scratch anywhere. I am trying to cure myself and accept the fact that dings and scratches are bound to happen. :dt880smile:

About a week back I mentioned that woot! was selling off some high capacity portable battery packs. Mine arrived today. They came with these little mesh drawstring pouches that are too small for the battery packs themselves. I figure they're for keeping the USB cords and adapter bits. They're perfectly sized for a DX50 and a bit of headphone cable looped up and/or a USB OTG cable and flash drive or even one of those mSATA adapter boxes. Probably not big enough for an amp as well (apologies for the crappy photography):

overall protective screen is low quality, sticker sticks and sucks and whole experience was let down. no way could remove small bubbles. thing sucks

now i confess i like iBasso less for three reasons:

1- screen protector sucks, low quality, small sticker glued like hell and difficult to remove
2- USB cable junk, cheap, has connectivity issues and can go to waste bin
3- silicon case is made of real cheap silicon and collects dust like hell...

so in the end the only thing worth in the package is DX50 itself, the rest can be thrown out including cheapo packaging frown.gif

 

Huh that's odd. Mine worked perfectly. Except for three small pieces of dust that I missed, which now show tiny bubbles of air. Other than that though, the screen protector works perfectly. Fits right to the edges, and is just as clear as the original screen.

 

Maybe there are some Golden Screen Protectors to go with the Golden DX50s? :L3000:

I think the problem is knowing what the protector is and what the protector-protector is. There are 3 plys in the kit. The middle ply is the actual screen protector. You remove the one that protects the adhesive (and it is a very low stick adhesive), apply to the screen, and then carefully remove the front side protector. Discard the two outer plys.

@Sorensiim Soren when you got a chance can you please post the DX50 firmware version history on page 1 from the PM.

 

Thanks.

What amp would you guys recommend for the dx50 with jh16fp? Would the international be good? Mostly listen to japanese and english pop songs

I see the same drain whether the player is playing or not, whether headphones are plugged in or not, whether anything is connected to the line out jack or not. The Rockchip SoC is designed to have a very good idle power profile and that's managed by the OS kernel, something that iBasso probably hasn't touched so that's probably not it. The two most likely culprits that I can think of are the amplifier and the uSD card. Testing the uSD card is easy: eject it when the player is going to be idle for several hours and see what happens. I'll try that myself today

The click or crack that you hear is a relay switching and, I believe, disconnecting the battery from the system (but not the charge circuit). It's normal.

Edit 1: Going on 3 hours with auto power off = never and uSD card removed. Battery gauge still reads full. I've sent a note to iBasso describing the situation and requesting that they look into it and get back to me so I can pass it on.

Edit 2: Four hours and the battery gauge ticked down one block. I think I'm on to something, here. Going to try a few things to see if I can narrow down what's being read from the card. Not expecting word from iBasso for a while; it's something like 3am there.

Edit 3: After a few more hours of testing it by leaving it idle my suspicion has changed slightly. Rather than the uSD card I now believe that it is the player looking at the .album_art directory on the internal store while a track is displayed but not playing. Going on three hours with the uSD card inserted, all album artwork removed, and the .album_art directory emptied followed by a reboot to make sure everything is clean. Excessive-seeming power drain is still there, less than with 300 or so album covers in .album_art, more than with the uSD card ejected and no music queued. This is still all Mk.I Eyeball measurement so your mileage may vary.

Will follow up with a new post once I hear back from iBasso.

Mine have got battery drain even in shut down mode. A full charge went down to the half way point the next day and then drop all the way down to the last bar on the second day. Tried a second time with a full charge and in shut down mode shows that the battery went down by 1 bar the next day which was looking good but that's not to be. It went straight down to the last bar on the next day and the last bar only managed about half an hour of playtime before it shuts down due to low battery. Having contacted and told by iBasso, it shouldn't consume battery while in shut down mode and mine could be defective. Along with one other issue with the built of my player, it's on it's way to MP4Nation for RMA. It's been a long wait since I put in the pre-order and now have to wait some more and it does kind feels of frustrating. Hope this would be resolved in the shortest possible time and will post back again.
